‘What A Ridiculous Decision If We Do Send Him Out’ ‘He Should Be Playing’ Fans Unhappy With Lampard’s Comments On Chelsea Star

Chelsea midfielder Billy Gilmour put in an impressive performance as the Blues secured their passage to the fifth round of the FA Cup with a 3-1 win against Luton Town yesterday.

The 19-year-old dictated play from the middle of the park with his precise, crisp passing and was always in the right areas to receive the ball and start attacks. He also played a part in Tammy Abraham’s third goal. However, after the game, when asked whether the Scot could be loaned out, manager Frank Lampard said he was still open to the possibility:

“At the moment, he won’t go on loan but we will keep it open until the end of the month.”

Unsurprisingly, when fans on Twitter saw those comments about Gilmour, they were not particularly pleased:

Lampard’s treatment of Gilmour since he returned from injury in November has been rather odd. Despite performing well when given a chance, the midfielder has not started a Premier League game this season.

After yesterday’s display, you would have thought the player would be in contention to start against Wolves on Wednesday evening but that doesn’t seem likely.
